The illustration of February was very simple and took me only a few hours to finish. My main idea was to have a dark pond/lake in the middle of a forest, with everything dark and still. I wanted the scene to radiate silence so deep you can almost hear it from the image. The unicorn is in the center of the painting; it is the only source of light in the dark forest,emitting a magical, almost eerie glow.
On the left there is the scanned, finished painting. Above you can find a time-lapse video of the painting process of this calendar illustration.
